Ski treks upon untouched virgin snow with a friendly team under the guidance of experienced guides. We will spend time surrounded by picturesque mountains, fairy cedars, away from civilization. Luzhba is an original place with its own history and traditions. This is a real backcountry area. There are no roads, no cable cars. This is ideal area for ski trek. The area advantages are remoteness, reserve, but at the same time availability and a basic infrastructure for tourists (the tourist camps). You will discover the pristine beauty of the snowy Siberian taiga, because there is really a lot of snow in Luzhba. Wooden huts with small stoves, a typical Russian bathhouse, lard, vodka. Luzhba would not be itself and Siberia without all this. Enjoy and appreciate all this - local and original!

Highlights:

  • You will discover the pristine beauty of the snowy Siberian taiga, because there is really a lot of snow in Luzhba

  • scenic landscapes of the frozen lakes, rivers and waterfalls

  • overnights in a Russian style huts surrounded by wild taiga
